The following are several film making goofs or mistakes in the final Hunger Games movie. Read on the following and let me know if you have noticed them while watching the Hunger Games in the theater. I know, I know (“with Effie’s accent”), I wasn’t able to noticed them too. Anyway, the following were taken from IMDB. Enjoy.
District 12 and the Reaping
When Katniss is walking up for the reaping she has a bruise on her neck in next shot it’s gone.
When Effie Trinket is shown from behind walking to the bowl to draw the girls tribute, she has a lot of hair on her neck. Then, when she is shown from behind going to meet Katniss tribute, she has just a few strands of hair
During the Reaping, when Katniss yells, “I VOLUNTEER!” her hair is messed up and ruffled, however, when she states “I volunteer as tribute,” her hair is combed again.

The Tribute Parade and the Interview
When the 12 chariots are parading to the final stopping spot, the fans are throwing flowers and all kinds of things on the road that they ride in on. When they show the overhead view and the last chariots pull up there is not one item on the roadway.
|the road is filled with roses thrown by the Capitol people to the tributes during the parade|
|the roses were no longer seen, the road is clean|
When Katniss is turning around to show her fire dress, you can see her hair (bun) comes apart. But in the next scene her hair is nicely tucked in.
The Tribute Apartment
When Katniss is seeing images on the window of her penthouse room, in the forest image, when her face is focused, there is hair in front of her left eye. But after shifting to the forest image and then shifting back to her face, there is no hair in front of her left eye.

The Training Center
In the training hall, when Peeta is going to throw a weight, Clove, Cato and Marvel are standing together watching. But after he throws the weight, Glimmer, Cato and Marvel are watching.
|Clove, Cato and Marvel were watching Peeta fell down the rope (before he threw the medicine ball)|
|Cato, Marvel and Glimmer were seen after Peeta threw the medicine ball at the spears (where’s Clove?)|
While Katniss is hiding from the tributes in the tree she is shown once in her sleeping bag in one shot, and out of the sleeping bag in another.
Although the missing cannon from District 3 male’s death could be explained by temporary deafness, that does not explain why the cannon fire is missing from both Rue and her killer’s deaths.
|the cannon fire was missing when Rue and Marvel died in the arena|
Crew or equipment visible
After Katniss has destroyed the stockpile at Cornucopia, she runs back into the forest and stops to whistle to the mockingjay and signal Rue. In the wide shot you can very clearly see a blue marker for where she needed to stop.
Katniss draws her bow before taking her first shot at the bag of fruit on the stockpile. In the next shot, she draws her bow again.
When Cato has Peeta in a lock on the cornucopia, when Katniss is aiming her arrow at Cato, she has the fletchings on her arrow the wrong way round, she could never shoot straight with her bow loaded like this.
When Katniss draws her bow to deliver the coup de grâce to Cato, she initially aims downward as would be expected. But in the next shot, her aim changes to slightly upward. She releases the arrow in a path that would clearly fly far over him.
During the finale, Cato has Peeta in a choke-hold, and blood on his hands. Going back and forth from the duo to Katniss, the blood comes and goes.
